Job description



HEJ! (Swedish for Hi)

In IKEA, we are looking for several passionate engineers who are excited about technology and innovative ways of working and want to be a part of shaping the future of IKEA!

You may know IKEA from the furniture we sell, but there is much more happening in the background. Our vision of “creating a better everyday life for the many people” needs to be supported by amazing software systems, and we would like to ask if you want to be a part of this.


ABOUT THIS WORK AREA

In Payments, we want to enable all our customers to have a seamless payment experience. We want to achieve that by:

• Setting high engineering standards which ensure that the systems we build are highly secure, scalable, and resilient

• Experimenting with new technologies, taking a data driven approach to continuous improvement

To achieve this, we have laid a strong foundation that will allow us to grow steady and fast. We want to provide an easy-to-use platform for other products within IKEA to take payments regardless of channel.

In this role, you will report to an engineering manager in the Payments capability area. The Amsterdam office in the Netherlands will be your home location.
